I just got a Guruplug server a couple of days ago. It booted right up
as described and I connected and all worked fine. Then I installed
Debian as decribed at
'http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html' to a
USB flash drive. Also no problems everything works fine. Now I want
to move the os to a USB harddrive.

Martin notes on his site that USB support is a "little flakey". I
agree. I have had quite a few problems with my sheevaplug. Try adding a
reset to the bootcmd so that if it fails, it will retry until success
setenv bootcmd ‘setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run bootcmd_usb;
bootm 0×00800000 0×01100000; reset’
Great, that got me past that, next hurdle

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
